“Gidrul” Italian Slang Word of the Day with Stevie B.


Italian Slang Word of the Day

with Stevie B.

Growin’ up I heard this over and over again. When someone would act particularly dumb or dopey he would be called a Gidrul (Cetriolo in Grammatica Italiano).


Cetriolo or Gidrul in Slang is a Common expression among old world Italians. Actually it means Cucumber…. I know too funny right!

It’s more of a comical expression there is nothing vulgar about it. He is such a “Gidrul”.

If you grew up in an Italian American or for that matter any Italian / English speaking Immigrant family…. didn’t matter if you were first, second or third generation you heard these slang words.

Actually many of them were simply words that had been bastardized in the transition from Italian or from a particular Italian dialect into English.

Anyway you will see what I mean. We applaud Stevie for putting these together. Really cracks me up and… Not only does he say and describe the Italian or Dialect version of the word he also expresses the same thing in “Proper English”. Just Too Funny. So take a moment and let Stevie entertain you with the Italian Slang word of the Day. We can all use a good laugh.
